I am working on tor network security. I planned to set up my tor node setup with 3 nodes : entry,middle and exit node. I don't want to work on real time client's data.

  • Is it any way to not publish my nodes to the tor authoritative directory so that I can only use it for my research purpose?
  • If it is possible, can you force my tor browser to use only my unpublished tor nodes? I configured shadow locally and there is no proper documentation for setting up a entire 3 node tor architecture. Any help will be appreciated.

Chutney makes it easy to set up a testing tor network.

Yes. You tell them to publish to your authorities instead.

If it is possible, can you force my tor browser to use only my unpublished tor nodes

By configuring the Tor that Tor Browser runs in the background to connect to your tor network instead, yes.
